The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently condemned the British paparazzi amid concerns that their two children are constantly being subjected to ongoing harassment by photographers.
In a statement released Friday on behalf of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Kensington Palace Communications Secretary Jason Knauf said "a line has been crossed" while issuing a stern warning against the "increasingly extreme lengths" photographers go to get photos of 2-year-old Prince George and 3-month-old Princess Charlotte.
In one example of the alarming tactics employed by the paparazzi, Knauf said one photographer was caught by police just last week in the trunk of a rented vehicle that was parked outside of a children's playground where he has been snapping pictures of the royal heir, who is third in line to the throne. more >>

An Italian Catholic priest and his church are offering Christian couples willing to have a third child the equivalent of $2,200 in Euros to help increase the country's dwindling population of native Italians.
The money is being offered by Father Stefano Bimbi of the parish of Staggia in Tuscany, and it can only be received after the couple has baptized the child. The couple must have also been married in the Catholic Church and have to be native Italians, according to TheLocal.it.
Bimbi hopes the money will help parents "with the courage to accept the gift of a child." He also said the Church does not have a large amount of money for the initiative, but he promised that it would continue until all the funds run out. more >>
Famed retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said Thursday night that he is "sickened" by allegations that he has done research on fetal tissue and dismissed them as untrue and "pathetic," while noting how he has spent his "entire life caring for children."

Gunter is an outspoken advocate for legalized abortion. In a July op-ed for The New Republic she argued that fetuses are not actually unborn babies and she used the term "products of conception" to describe aborted babies. more >>
